Harris Jayaraj

Expectations were high when Ravi K Chandran kicked off his maiden directorial venture Yaan. Known to be a prolific cameraman, audience obviously expected a colorful riot in Yaan.

As expected it turned out to be one. But sadly the content has gone missing. Yaan is a mix and match of many previous films on the same theme. It is the story of a youngster got struck in a foreign land for possessing drug and how he fights the system to return to the country.

Jiiva is the wheel and axle of the movie. He romance, emotes, fights and keep one engaged with his wonderful performance. He has matured as a hero well. Thulasi Nair is not far behind.

She is cute and bubbly. Naaser and Jayaprakash are enough to keep the audience engrossed.Harris Jayaraj combined with Manush Nandan's cinematography makes it a watchable fare.

Jiiva is a fun-loving youth who falls for Thulasi in Mumbai. But her father rejects the proposal stating that he is jobless. An MBA graduate, he takes up job in a foreign country. But conspiracy lands him in prison. 

He is sentenced to death. Now the onus is on Thulasi to go all the way and retrieve him. Ravi K Chandran has tried to go Mani Ratnam way in the first half and speaks like Shankar in the next. What is a fun-ride shift to some acrobatic action in the second the prisons, the streets of Morocco are all captured well.

All said, a tight screenplay would have made a lot of difference.
